BEP Production FiguresThe U.S. government in January printed more notes with a higher total value compared to December, according to Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) figures released Friday, February 13.

The agency printed fewer $1s and $100s, and no $5s. However, the production of $50s more than doubled in January, making up for the difference.

In total, 489,600,000 banknotes were produced last month valued at $20,345,600,000. In contrast, the BEP printed 461 M notes worth $17.5 billion in December.

Spread across the 31 days in January, the BEP averaged some 15.8 million notes per day with a total daily face value worth about $656 million.

The agency also produced 3.2 million $100 star notes (total of these not in table below). Star notes are replacements for misprinted notes or certain serial numbers, like 000 000 000. These notes are generally more desirable to collectors as they are rarer.
